The Web is fundamentally designed to work for all people by removing barriers to communication and interaction that exist in the physical world. Unfortunately, when web sites, applications, and/or software are poorly designed, they exclude those with cognitive, auditory, visual and/or motor skill disabilities. At Blackboard, accessibility and inclusive thinking are an imperative---not an afterthought. We recognize that we have the unique ability to positively impact the lives of people with disabilities and are working to deeply integrate accessibility into all aspects of our organizational culture. We are building tools and services that inspire people of all abilities to learn. Blackboard Ally, a revolutionary new accessibility solution that integrates directly into a district’s learning management and content management systems, embodies this commitment. Join us as we discuss the current state of digital accessibility and share examples of how we’re helping districts take clear control of their content with usability, accessibility and quality in mind.
